A heavily criticized Ashton Kutcher film is currently dominating Netflix.

According to Flix Patrol, What Happens In Vegas is a top 10 movie in the streaming app in 31 countries, including Australia, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Chile, and Costa Rica.

The romantic comedy, whose title is based on the infamous Las Vegas catchphrase, follows the lives of two strangers named Jack Fuller (Kutcher) and Joy McNally, portrayed by Cameron Diaz after tying the knot while intoxicated in Sin City. Following the event, Fuller wins $3 million with McNally’s quarter. In order to gain ownership of the earnings, the pair are then forced to stay married for six months and attend marriage counseling. 

The film also stars Lake Bell, Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Jason Sudeikis, Dennis Farina, Everwoods star Treat Williams, Queen Latifah, and Zach Galifianakis. Despite being panned by critics, in 2008, What Happens In Vegas claimed the second spot after MCU’s Iron Man during its opening weekend. It ultimately went on to generate $219.3 million worldwide.
